AirMonitor deployment question

 

Is there a best practice for how close an AirMonitor should be to an AP ? or it doesn't matter ?

Thank you

 Thanks for the info.

 

It looks like it doesn't matter which was my initial thought but I wanted to confirm that before deploying these

I don't think it matters, but I would say it's a good idea to have at least a couple of meters.  That way the AP won't overwhelm the AM with really high signal.

 

The recommendation is 1 AM per 4 APs, but that really depends on your environment.
